From: Brian P. Biggins
As a founding partner of a law firm in Cleveland, Ohio established to assist public customers in claims against the brokerage industry, I strongly urge the SEC to reject the NASD's request for "Accelerated Approval" of Rule Filing SR-NASD-2003-158 and publish this proposed rule for public comment.
Having spent over ten years as a broker, branch manager and compliance officer in the brokerage industry prior to attending law school, I am well aware of how both sides of the street work for and against the interests of the investing public. Given that this Rule Filing will have a very serious impact on the public investor, one of the fastest growing segments of our society, I strongly urge the SEC to publish this proposal for public comment rather than simply "rubber stamping" the NASD's request.
I appreciate your anticipated cooperation and attention to this matter.
Very truly yours,
Brian P. Biggins, Esq.
